Undercover in High Heels by Gemma Halliday
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I love how Hollywood likes to make fun of itself (just watch the Bones episode "The Suit on the Set"). Gemma Halliday knows this, and ran with it to make the LA in her High Heels novel.
"Undercover in High Heels" starts out with Maddie and Dana catching up on their "Desperate Housewives"-esque prime time soap. Setting the scene like that is always a good way to make the characters relatable. Who doeesn't watch TV with their friends.
After the Murder du Dour, Maddie and Dana get it into their heads to solve the mystery by working on the set. Dana does a really good job at convincing Maddie to get involved, even when she shouldn't. Maddie wants to be left alone. She doesn't want to go, but Dana is one persuasive chick. Which Ramirez probably hates. He also hates that Maddie associates with Felix. Ramirez is really protective to the point of obnoxious. I know why Maddie goes along with Dana's schemes. She's trying to get Ramirez to believe that she can take care of herself. Unfortunately, while she usually solves the crime, Ramirez doesn't think of her as an equal. Just a dumb blonde.
I enjoyed this book, but Ramirez is really starting to annoy me and Felix is looking better and better.
